Cholangiocarcinoma is a rare neoplasm and a difficult challenge for the surgeon because of its anatomic location. Surgery remains the only curative option for perihilar cholangiocarcinoma with the best survival rates at 5 years. Portal vein invasion requires portal vein resection and its corresponding reconstruction. However, as portal vein invasion is an intraoperative finding in most cases it is
